村田 正幸(大阪大学経営企画オフィス長)

Masayuki Murata(Director, Office of Management and Planning)




Following the demand for strategic management, as stipulated in the Japanese governmental “Strategy for Strengthening Management at National Universities” (June 2015), national universities are required to organize management systems that allow for greater autonomy and accountability. In order to comply with this demand, Osaka University underwent an organizational reconstruction in April 2016 to revitalize its missions to educate, research and contribute to society and internationalization, and the Office of Management and Planning was established with the purpose of supporting the management’s governance through provision of information and analyses necessary for establishing policies and making strategic decisions and proposals for new Osaka University measures.

Furthermore, with the aim of reforming the university’s governance, it was decided in August 2017 to strengthen its managerial and operational functions and to develop a steady and progressive management system. The Office of Management and Planning has been furnished with the capacity to perform dynamic project management to strengthen support of new university management structures.

How the Office of Management and Planning will contribute to the university’s management and research activities is one of the keys to increasing Osaka University’s competitiveness in its strive to become a world-leading comprehensive research university. In close collaboration with academic and administrative staff, we are dedicated to support university management and to strengthen the basis for supporting research and research promotion. We welcome and appreciate intramural as well as extramural support and understanding for our activities.
